Ripley Green to Walton Bridge (8.45 miles)

 

Starts on The Green at Ripley High Street and after less than a mile joins the Wey Navigation at Walsham Gates and follows it Weybridge. We then follow the towpath along the Desborough Cut to Walton Bridge. The route is flat and easy. With some of the photos below you can click on them to view a larger image.
